I know this has an incredible fan base and considered a cult classic but as someone who never watched this I don't have any nostalgia feelings for this. I found some of the animation to be pretty good while others, like for the segment, "Harry Canyon", I didn't care very much for (although it was my favorite one of the bunch, reminded me of The Fifth Element). The rest was watchable but not terribly impressive and the last, "Taarna" had good visuals but at that point I really was not invested. I don't know, maybe if I had watched this at some point in the late 80s or early 90s, it would have a better connection with my, but I was more interested as it is, not sure I have much interest in revisiting. **3.0/5**
